What are the odds of getting shot if held up at gunpoint?

Someone told me that there was a 9 in 10 chance of getting shot if one is held up at gunpoint. Is this true?

If the odds are this high in favor of getting shot, someone's best bet would be to try either thwarting the gunman or running like hell. I've read a few sites
on the issue, but can't find any solid evidence.
Has anyone done a study on this, and what would be the best way to react to being held up at gunpoint?
